    Mr. Bo Thin of Myanmar Upper Land Tours was extremely accommodating in arranging for our party of 3 to have the full experience of their 10 hour Ava, Sagaing, Amarapura and Mingun tour over a period of 2 days, scheduled around our flights to and from Mandalay, including an airport pickup! We were able to experience the ancient cities and spectacular sites at our own pace with knowledgeable and informative guides and an excellent driver. Excellent tour. This is not to be missed! Among the extra touches, our guides took many memorable photos of us and helped us with the various dialects/languages in the temple markets we wished to visit.

    Very personal attention by our guide Joe. We started by spending time in the fields reviewing the harvest of peanuts. Joe was informative and patient. He had good knowledge of history.

    Der Tagesausflug war kulturell sehr interessant. Angenehme Reiseführerin, die soweit verständlich erklärte u. auf unsere Fragen eingehen konnte. Guter Fahrer, der es aber leider nicht ganz verstand mit der Klimaanlage im Auto zurecht zu kommen, welche auf Kühlschrankmässig eingestellt war. Das Mittagessen zeigte im Verlauf des Nachmittags leider Nachwirkung mit zunehmendem Unwohl sein, was sich erst zwei Tage später wieder verbesserte.

    On time at the hotel in the morning. We got a car to ourselves. Plan for the day was printed with all details, and 2 lovely hand painted pictures. Bottled water for 2. Our guide, Pa Pa, was lovely. Pleasure to have her show us around. Lunch was good. Overall, a very good experience! and would recommend this to others too.

    We usually don’t refer to travel agencies and we prefer to plan our visits by ourself however to see the Mingun/Ava/Amapura area an organized tour is highly recommended and Upperland is a very good option for many reasons: 1- it is possible to book and pay online - the website is very clear and easy to utilize, the program of the day well explained, 2- the communication (before and during the visit) was totally fluid, 3- they fully respected the itinerary and the timetable, 4- Jim Me, our guide, is a “walking encyclopedia”: he explained us the history of each sites in detail but also the history, customs and traditions of Myanmar and he’s updated on what is happening in the world as well. If we add that he’s very funny, here you have the recipe for a fantastic and cheerful day-trip. 5- Mr Phyo, the driver, was prudent and always available.

    We hadden via ons hotel een taxi geregeld en kregen een hele leuke goed Engels sprekende chauffeur Die ons de hele dag rond gereden heeft We kregen goede tips van hem en zijn naar Mingun en Amarapura geweest Mingon was indrukwekkend, een schitterend bouwwerk Amarapura daarvan hadden we ons iets anders voorgesteld We hadden in onze reisgids gelezen , dat daar heel veel kunstenaars zouden zitten En wij stelde ons zoiets voor als Ubud op Bali Maar dat was niet zo, er stonden wel stalletjes met mooie schilderijen en houtsnijwerk (ook leuk) maar niet wat wij zochten We zijn natuurlijk ook naar de bekende teak houten brug geweest, en wilde vanaf het water de zonsondergang bewonderen Daar lagen echt heel veel bootjes, maar er eentje huren ging helaas niet Ze waren allemaal al geboekt Toen hebben we vanaf de kant toch veel mooie plaatjes geschoten Maar we zijn daar toch te vroeg weg gegaan Want als de zon onder is, moet je nog een half uurtje wachten, want dan kleurd de hemel rood Dat zagen we toen we alweer op de terug weg waren Maar we hebben van onze fout geleerd, want toen we in Bagan waren om de zonsondergang te bewonderen hebben we wel gewacht, en dat is de moeite waard

    Nuestra guía (de quien publicaré en el comentario una foto ya que lamentablemente no recuerdo su nombre), paso a recogernos por el hotel a las 7 AM (habíamos solicitado que nos recogieran antes de las 8 para evitar la concentración de gente, ya que todas las excursiones comienzan a las 8 AM). Recorrimos los 4 pueblos planeados en auto, comenzando por Mingun, Ava, Sagaing, para terminar viendo el atardecer en Amarapura. Al mediodía paramos a almorzar (el almuerzo estaba incluido, no las bebidas) en un agradable lugar y la comida estuvo muy bien. La guía demostró, además de sus conocimientos, muy buena predisposición para incluir, dentro de lo que fue posible, puntos que nos interesaban ver y conocer. Estamos muy conformes con el tour.

    Alle Sehenswürdigkeiten erfüllen die von Reiseführern (Druckmedien) gesetzte Erwartungen in vollem Maße ! Bei der Wahl eines Tourguides im privaten Wagen kann man auch das Tempo der Tour individuell bestimmen und so den Massen ausweichen !

    We were two adults in a car, full day to the ancient cities around mandalay, we were at our own pace, really nice company, full of information about the sights and you can modify the tourto your needs. I would do it again without doubt
